The annual Dyno and Drag Races on South Flat Road return Saturday. Here, two racers compete on the dirt track in June 2017.

WORLAND – Diesel Pickup Specialists (DPS) of Worland, has expanded into a new location, and will celebrate today with a grand reopening and events.

Now located at a larger, new facility at 1082 N. 10th St., DPS primarily specializes in diesel mechanics, but also works on custom cars and diesel drag racers.

At 5 p.m., the company will celebrate their new location with an open house, cookout and car show, open to the public.

On Saturday, DPS will host their fifth-annual NHRDA sanctioned Dyno and Dirt Drags at Madden Farm, at 1915 S. Flat Road, here in Worland.

For the past several years, since building the prize-winning CAT-AMAX, a custom diesel drag truck, Dan Madden (owner of Madden Farms) and DPS owner Mykle Baugh have toured the Northwest Dyno Circuit, competing in drag races, tractor pulls, and exhibitions of the vehicles power.

Last year, the CAT-AMAX competed in the Desert Diesel Nationals, a National Hot Rod Diesel Association (NHRDA) sanctioned event in Phoenix, Ariz.

Running three more competitions including drags, tractor pulls and a horsepower test, the CAT-AMAX finished 16th out of 28 trucks in the three-event cycle. At the Dyno Industrial Injection competition, the truck won First Place in the Single-Turbo class, brining yet another trophy home for Madden and DPS.

Saturday's event will include horsepower tests and drags and begins at 10 a.m.
